As the title says, what do you guys think that's necessary -stats, equipment, weapon skills, etc.- to be able to kill Sherarax in melee? No bear traps, no wands, just pure plain and crude (?) melee.

To kill Sherarax in straight-up, no tricks melee? Well, you can either be Petrus, or... Well no I don't think Petrus could even kill Sherry. So you basically have to be Valpurus. Or Slob. I bet Slob could do it.

Slob can punch Petrus in the face with both hands tied behind his back.

One time I asked Slob to dress up as Santa for a Christmas party I was having for my children. Anyway, Slob shows up as Santa, says I've got goodies for you kids. He reaches into his bag and proceeds to hand out scrap metal and cigarettes to them. Then he takes off his beard and says There's no Santa cause I ate him!

Well, back to the topic... Once I had 80 A&Lstr, 130 dex and agi, 50+ perc, 17 level in large swords skill + 18 acustomization, haste, levitation, golden eagle feather gear (my armor had over 40 AV), valpurium two-handed sword +13, Valpurus Justifier. I zapped Sherry with slow wand and she did killed me with her second whip attack by decapitation. She needs rebalancing.

Lurk the Bay12 forums, somewhere someone gets a notion that IVAN is a fun neat game, but is unwinnable at the moment.
Well I assume that a bolt has a given, numeric, amouunt of perwer. (assi in enegri)... unless it's LAERSER SKISKLS POEWN PEWN!
